Excellence In Action Summer Program For Rising 7th Graders

Thoreau is pleased to once again offer its Excellence in Action summer camp program to rising 7th graders.  This week-long program is designed by our own staff members to provide students with the essential background knowledge and skills that will help them have a successful transition to middle school.

Two sessions will be offered this summer. Please register for only one session. 

Session 1:  July 15 - 19, 2019, from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM, at Thoreau.

Session 2:  July 29 - August 2, 2019, from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM, at Thoreau.  

  • How to Register: Visit the Thoreau website and fill out the Excellence in Action Google Form.    
  • Cost: The cost of the program is $80. This payment will cover the instructional expenses plus lunch for your student and a Thoreau t-shirt. Payment must now be made by either cash or check.   Please make checks payable to Thoreau Middle School and send by mail to the school or drop off the check in the front office.  
  • Transportation: Parents will need to arrange transportation to and from Thoreau. Carpooling, walking, or biking is highly encouraged. There will be a shuttle bus from Mosby Woods Elementary and Madison H.S.  The bus will pick up students at Mosby Woods around 8:10 am and then at Madison HS (Door 11 the main Gym entrance) around 8:25am.  It will depart for Thoreau at 8:35am.  The bus will pick up your child from Thoreau at 12pm.  They will arrive back at Madison between 12:10-12:25 and Mosby Woods around 12:30.
